100 gb of space!

Still doesn't quite catch up to Forza 7 or Gears of War 4, but dayum, if this is the "new norm", I only have room for like 10 games on my ssd.

Forza 7 clocks in at 98 GB for me. Took a while to find this out, as apparently the windowsapp folder it was in is locked down by default to the point that not even system administrators are allowed to open it. What a crock of shit.

anyone use protonmail? seems they have been having a massive DDOS attack and are down currently, at least for 12 hours now too. there is talk of a state-sponsored attacker
The only countries sleezy enough to do something like that would be Iraq, Israel, Egypt, Syria, USA, North Korea, USSR, Iran, China, Jordan and possibly the Principality of Liechtenstein.
ProtonMail DDoS Attacks Are a Case Study of What Happens When You Mock Attackers

fucking LOL

Hopefully this makes their service more resilient to this kind of thing, at least.

Amazon delivering their own packages... that is a big "screw you" to Trump!

Yep. Basically, if he’s gonna try to force the USPS to raise rates for no real reason other than “my buddies’ businesses that haven’t changed since before the Internet are complaining that Amazon has found a better way to do things”, they’re just going to make their own delivery service and the postal service is going to lose a MASSIVE income generator.

I'm so triggered right now.

I'm '82, so some call me a millennial, some don't. But I hate the term, as it lumps me in with some serious fuckwads.

Every generation includes some serious fuckwads =)

I'm pretty close there with ya, a fellow member of the "X-Men" (the cusp between gen x and millennials)

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn
And I dream of what I need

I need a hero

I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life!

In before anti-DRM told you so squad and hellfire. I think this sucks too, but I'm not abundant enough in excess energy to rant about it on the Blue's News forum.

This is something that drives me crazy, why do these companies continue to leave DRM like this in older games that no longer require the game to be protected from piracy when a game has already been cracked to begin with. This is stupidity at its finest with developers.

Because it costs money to make this change, and they are happy keeping everything they can without concern for the future of the product they made/ported.

Event Pass: Sanhok

Is this a case of charging people for new content to a game that was never finished in the first place, or are they selling people early access to their new area in the game before the game is finished? Can't tell which level of horsecockery this is..

It's been years and years since I've had hot dog water. Anyone know a decent recipe?

Hot dog water sounds like a great recipe for rectal prolapse.

Anyone?

In Australia all this shit was shown before and after school on State media. I assume it was psyops to try and raise a generation of sci-fi nerds who would then get into science. Which worked but then we defunded science and they all went to work in the US which sells technology back to us for massive profits. Or maybe it was to help us love Japanese culture and forget about all the great uncles that died fighting the empire in South East Asian jungles.

I too used to watch Robotech before school. It's one of the only things that would get me to wake up early on school days.

That's quite the theory about the state media showing robotech, lol.

My other favorite cartoon from around the same time was Mysterious Cities of Gold.

Never watched Ulysses 31, but it looks like the eastern buck-rogers inspired anime from the time, like captain harlock and such. Space Dandy is a pretty hilarious recent space sci-fi/comedy anime. Well worth a watch.

It's a no-brainer that this will be on PC after the king's ransom they made off of GTA:V PC. They don't have the multi-generation re-sale potential on consoles like they did with GTA:V, so the delayed launch on PC is the only chance they have of selling multiple copies to people this time. TakeTwo's shareholders are not just going to sit idly by if they try treating PC gamers with any decency, and release it along with the console versions. When the bean counters are making all the calls, you can expect no less from them.

They would also be foolish not to port RDR2 over, given the massive work they did getting GTA:V and the modern RAGE engine running so well on PC's. The groundwork is all there, but for them it's just a marketing game.

Now if only they'd have a GOG version. But that'll never happen.

It would have a fine place amongst the many other Source games on GOG. Oh wait..

Holy crap, $4.99 per channel Youtube subscriptions? Per month? That can't be right. I must be reading that wrong. I thought the subscription sounded good, but I was thinking more like .25 or .50 per channel. For $5 per month, I'd want subscriptions to like 20 channels. It's not like Pewdie Pie is AMC or HBO.

They're following the twitch model for this it seems; so we can look forward to this change blocking out basic features on youtube channels unless you are a "subscriber" as well.

I don't recall this Robotech cartoon but I did watch a lot of Battle of the Planets.

Robotech was pretty awesome. Not many cartoons willing to kill off the entire cast in an episode or two and then just continue on with their descendants and a new story/cast in the following episode.

Unless you're playing Quake 2, you're not gonna be killing any strogg in single player

For the 25th anniversary we should have a bluesnews throwback quake session set up. Like 3 servers with ctf, tdm and dm. That would be quite fun if enough people participate. Maybe even do a small comp for steam gift cards or something.

I played quake champions for the first time in close to a year yesterday, and it is actually making some good progress. Quick queue times too. Gonna play a bunch more of that this weekend but it is sorely missing ctf, which is crazy to me. They're even talking about adding instagib, and yet no ctf. Fucking bizarro world. Would love to see rocket arena come back too.
